Companies around the globe are facing supply chain issues, as variants of the Covid-19 virus continue to exacerbate an already depleted labor force. Uncertainty has proven to be the biggest hurdle for businesses because it impedes their ability to plan and commit the resources to keep their costs low.     

With the national cost of living on the rise, coupled with household goods and corporate temporary housing costs increasing approximately 45% and 25% respectively, relocations are becoming more expensive than ever. Supply chain issues are wreaking havoc on service availability, making meeting the needs and timeframes of the company and employees even more challenging.
